3 month old with calcified hemotoma

My son developed a large hemotoma on his head hours after his birth. He is now 3.5 months old. It has calcified and he still has that huge goose egg on his head. I'm hoping to find a remedy that will dissolve the calcification and allow the body to absorb the blood. His allopathic pediatrician says surgery is the only solution, which we don't want to put his little body through. Please help!

Thank you - a worried mother.

Yes, of course. These were just taken yesterday at a baby helmet clinic. You can see it on his back left.

***Does his head sweats more when he sleeps?
freehomeoforall 7 months ago
His pregnancy and birth were very healthy and normal. He was born naturally at home in 5 hours. The hemotoma developed a few hours after birth. The blood from the hemotoma pooled between the skull bone and the inner layer of tissue that sits between the skull and skin. There was no discoloration on the skin and it was not sensitive when touched. It was soft at first but the blood began to calcify and harden at about 1 month.

The hematoma caused jaundice in him from his first week, which was resolved at about 6 weeks old.

His head does not sweat when he sleeps.

He has always had a lot of gas. He often has stomach pain from gas which makes him cry. He feels better when he leans forward.

He vomits often after eating, and even in between meals. He usually does not cry when he vomits.

He typically poops once every 3-4 days, but he is not constipated. This is common for breastfed babies.

He is growing twice as fast as the average baby growth rate.

He has been sleeping more than usual during the day for the past 2 weeks.

He has been eating more than usual in the past 2 weeks.

He sees a chiropractor and gets adjustments 1 a week just for overall well being.

Other than that, he is a happy and healthy baby.

I'll suggest another medicine after 7 days by observing the situation.

Single dose only. No medicine from next day.

Ok, got it. I will get the arnica 1M tomorrow and give him just one dose on Sunday. Thank you so much for your help. I'm hopeful for some improvement!

I'm following up on the Arnica 1M. I gave my son 3 pills of Arnica 1M on Sunday morning. Now, it's Tuesday night and I took another picture to compare to the first picture. I do think that the hematoma has gone down just a little bit.

What should I do now? Keep giving the Arnica 1M?

Ok fine.
Wait 10 days. No need to apply anymore. Give feedback after 3 days more.

I expected to have an update. If the problem is gone, it may be a great news for me.
